PRESENTATION OF THE ARTIST AND HIS WORK
In these times when everything is digitized, Stéphane PONTIé, contemporary painter, works painting as a fundamental component
of representation. He continues to take advantage of the high graphical potential of this medium by using all his "traditional" mechanics
"At first, I painted an assemblage of geometric and colorful shapes, and that's it.
To want a field of expression clear and simple to realize and understand,
and by affinity for the angular forms, I finally banished all the curves of my work."
I decided to codify these geometric shapes, depending on their use.
I use angular geometric figures for replacing the figurative form of the people:
- One geometric shape = one person.
- One line (straight or broken) = the trajectory of one life, a path of someone.
This is how i created my universe by the invention of a new graphical syntax.
I decided to give a thickness to the lines, because I wanted to use the graphic
representation of the line, to symbolize a trajectory, a life, a path ...
And the question of the thickness of the line is asked.
It seemed logical then to use numbers with "this strange alphabet" of geometric shapes,
to obtain a complete and coherent linguistic base ...
and to solve problems of thickness of lines.
Suddenly, watching my phone keypad, i immediately saw 3 numbers appear in the middle
of all these numbers. The 1, 4 and 7 are only "no curves".
I push the "concept of angulosity" even further, and I use these numvers to create the
geometric figures themselves and the thicknesses of the lines.
And finally, i push the limits of my concept even further,
since i use these three numbers to compose everything.
Up to the size of the frames of my paintings: Example 77 x 77 or 117 x 77.
